13 men showed up at The Matrix this morning despite the rain that has been coming down steadily for nearly 24 hours. YHC properly(ish) disclaimed the group. First exercise – go grab a rock and head back to the overhang shelter by the front of the school.
COP, or more of a row of pain this time.

Soggy, dripping, and pruned moleskine:
The Men of F3 Area 51 never cease to amaze. A cool dozen of you showed up to join me on a morning that most other rational human beings would have spent in bed. Or maybe at the Y next to a fern. Nope, you chose to get wet first thing on a Monday morning. Just be thankful Uncle Leo wasn’t leading this charge. He very well may have had you doing log rolls across the field.
Started out the morning letting the PAX know that I spent too much time running in the rain yesterday and had little interest in either one of these this morning. So, not much of a head fake or secret plan. Just grab a rock and head for shelter.
Strong work by all. The team of Lobster Roll and Fire Hazard seemed to be leading the charge. No one was far back. Good to see Prohibition back on the circuit after a strong showing at the Chicago Marathon. I proclaimed my jealousy for him being done with his 26.2 while Back Office and I commiserated over continued training regimens. Pop Tart also back in the regular rotation after busting up his toe in a Spartan Race a month or so back. I think Smokey got the “biggest rock/poor decision making” award for the morning.
I appreciate all of you being out there and giving me the honor of leading. Thanks to Smokey for the send off.
No announcements in the rain.
